Sadists like to inflict
pain because they find suffering, both corporeal and psychological, amusing.
They torture animals and people because, to them, the sights and sounds of a
creature writhing in agony are hilarious and pleasurable. Sadists go to great lengths
to hurt others: they lie, deceive, commit crimes, and even make personal
sacrifices merely so as to enjoy the cathartic moment of witnessing someone
Sadists are masters of
abuse by proxy and ambient abuse. They terrorize and intimidate even their
nearest and dearest into doing their bidding. They create an aura and
atmosphere of unmitigated yet diffuse dread and consternation. This they
achieve by promulgating complex "rules of the house" that restrict
the autonomy of their dependants (spouses, children, employees, patients,
clients, etc.). They have the final word and are the ultimate law. They must be
obeyed, no matter how arbitrary and senseless are their rulings and decisions.
